From 1/12/2016 P Platers are now banned from using mobile phones in any shape or form while driving or stationery.
Green P Platers (P2) are no longer permitted to use a mobile phone at all. This includes hands free, phone on speaker, blue tooth or GPS function on the phone.
Penalties include loss of 4 demerit points plus a hefty fine. Expect to lose double demerit points for using mobile phones over the Christmas New Year Holiday period.
Remember, don't be tempted, put your mobile phone in the boot, keep yourself & others around you safe.
